There has been a lot written about the revolution in Paris, France in 1789. Marceau is a French Historical Fiction Novel based on Maurice Marceau, a back-channel financier who finances several wars, heads of state, and sovereigns. He is quite unconventional in his ways when it comes to sex, love, and marriage due to his hidden gay relationship. Maurice uses his wealth and political position to pay key members of the general assembly to propose the legality of divorce. This is a great work of historical fiction based upon true financial and historical events, great storytelling and imagination. Thelma Benison brings us a very clear grasp of the perils of power, a nation in crisis, and show us Maurice’s vivid and personal evolution on divorce.
This novel has several audiences ranging from women, male, young adult and gay based upon Marceau’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Marceau.org) living in the US, UK, and DE.
